Scheduling and Switch

The Advisory Committee on Medicines Scheduling (ACMS) makes recommendations on the classification of ingredients used in medicines.  The Advisory Committee on Chemicals Scheduling (ACCS) makes recommendations on the classification of other substances.  Both were previously combined as the National Drugs and Poisons Schedule Committee (NDPSC).

The decisions of these committees affect medicines, devices, cosmetics and chemical products; how they are packaged, where they can be sold and what information needs to be on labels
